With Texas Instruments’ WEBENCH Schematic Editor, engineers can customize power-management designs and simulate the circuit created within the WEBENCH environment. According to the company, the new feature reduces design and verification time from hours to minutes. The editing and simulation package maintains a library of over 40,000 components. As a result, it’s possible to incorporate multiple mixed output capacitors, filtering, board parasitics, and snubber circuits into WEBENCH power-supply designs. Then those customized power designs can be simulated (using the WEBENCH Power Designer’s Spice simulator) before they’re exported to CAD development platforms like Cadence OrCAD Capture CIS, Mentor Graphics Xpedition xDX Designer, CADSoft EAGLE, and Altium formats (e.g., Altium Designer). The WEBENCH environment consists of online tools such as Designer and Architect that enable end-to-end analog circuit design.
